Trailer: Blue Jasmine

It's been ages since I last saw Cate Blanchett in a movie (reprising her role in The Hobbit does not count), so this looks like a breath of different air in terms of her film choices. Written and directed by Woody Allen, Blue Jasmine is the story of a socialite's life spiraling down as she moves in with her sister in San Francisco. This looks like a light watch, nothing near Midnight in Paris, but still putting this on my watch list. It may star some underrated actors, but seeing their faces and names on an Allen film, is something refreshing as opposed to his typical cast list (with the exception of Baldwin). 


  1. This looks wonderful. I was not a fan of Midnight in Paris fact, I haven't been wowed with Allen since Vicky Cristina Barcelona. I'm hoping this will change all that. Blanchett looks marvelous!

    1. She does! I liked Midnight in Paris because it had a sense of whim to it. Definitely putting this on my watch list.

My Movie Alphabet Volume 2

In celebration of the 7th birthday of her blog, Mettel Ray has hosted the second round of her movie alphabet blogathon! Head over to her site and join in the fun! I participated in her first blogathon, and had a blast writing this so I was definitely in the second time around. When I first made this list, I was just thinking off the top of my head and placed a few things in there for the sake of crossing off some letters. I did end up thinking a lot for this list, and I went with things that are currently relevant to me. I also tweaked the rules a little bit, only because I don't want to let go of some of my picks. I think this list is a much clearer reflection on where I am in terms of my preferences compared to my previous years.

Thursday Movie Picks: The Renaissance (14th to 17th Century)

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme is renaissance movies. I rarely watch period pieces so I had researched if I was getting the time lines right. Here are my picks for the week.

No, You're Crying! Blogathon

Debbie over at Moon in Gemini is hosting the No, YOU'RE Crying! Blogathon. The rules are simple - talk about our favorite tearjerker films! Head over to her site for a list of participants and their subsequent entries. I had a bunch of movies that made it to my short list, but ultimately decided on the movie that I keep coming back to. That is Disney's The Fox and the Hound - and it does not fail to make me cry. Note: spoilers for the movie below.
